Mura Masa Taps A$AP Rocky For “Love$ick”

The UK producer’s new album will be out next year.

BBC Sound Of 2016 shortlister Mura Masa has dropped a new version of his track "Lovesick Fuck," now featuring some verses from A$AP Rocky and an appropriate new title: "Love$ick." Over tropical-electro production, Rocky tempts the girl who's caught his eye with bars about drugs, holidays, and memes: Credit charge / Kermit The Frog / Margaritas?.

"The track originally was about sex and how I was feeling after a particularly empty encounter with a friend told through a kind of twisted-pop, calypso, hip hop dance track," Mura Masa revealed in a statement to Pitchfork. "Rocky kind of ran with that and took it to this lovelorn, exotic place. He totally injected his energy into it." Mura Masa's new album is scheduled for a 2017 release.
